Sports serve as a fundamental and essential youth service to create a healthier path for young people. PlayMONTGOMERY Rock n Roll/Fit and Fun introduces young people, ages 8 -15, to multiple kinds of sports including rock climbing, biking, and skateboarding, while Fit N Fun provided swim lessons, skateboarding lessons, and fitness activities. In addition to promoting mental and physical health, youth sports help kids develop confidence, stay engaged in productive activities, and become more involved with their school and community. Offering engaging programming, in underserved neighborhoods, gives young people opportunities to participate in programs in their own communities and aids in reducing inequities for youth to access sports.
